Father and son, Mike and Dave Deacon, added yet another record to their list when they set a time for rounding the Southern Isles yesterday (November 5).

Driving their 30ft (9.1m) Yanmar diesel powered Scorpion Rib, Hot Lemon, they covered the 615.7 statute mile course round the Isle of Wight and Channel Islands in 9hrs 57mins 30secs. Their time shaved over ten hours off the previous un-ratified record for the same course.
